Clock made from Turkish Plate XXXVII in Owen Jones’ Grammar of Ornament.

From the text:

The architecture of the Turks, as seen at Constantinople, is in all its structural features mainly based upon the early Byzantine monuments; their system of ornamentation, however, is a modification of the Arabian, bearing about the same relation to this style as Elizabethan ornament does to Italian Renaissance.

… On the same building, side by side with ornaments derived from Arabian and Persian floral ornaments, we find debased Roman and Renaissance details, leading to the belief that these buildings have mostly been executed by artists differing in religion from themselves.

Woodburn clock with acrylic, metallic acrylic, fluorescent acrylic, and phosphorescent acrylic.
